Welcome To The Transportation Department
All students in grades kindergarten through 12 are welcome to ride our buses. Because our community is a small and rural, we transport students in grades K-12 together, on the designated bus routes, allowing older and younger siblings to travel together.
Regular Monday-Friday afternoon runs depart promptly at 2:35 p.m. Elementary students are dismissed before middle and high school students, and ushered to the buses, assuring safety and priority seating. Should it become necessary to switch bus numbers for a route, students are alerted via morning and/or afternoon announcements.
On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, we provide a late run for those students wishing to stay after for academic assistance or to participate in extra-curricular activities. Anyone staying after must be under the supervision of a faculty member or administrator who will supply the student with a signed green bus pass. The extra period finishes at 3:10 p.m., providing students the opportunity to visit their lockers before boarding the buses for the late run. Students will not be allowed to board their bus without this signed pass.
The safety and well-being of our students is our primary concern. We carefully monitor weather and road conditions on a daily basis. School closures are announced via various methods to reach as many families as possible. Should weather conditions become inclement during school hours, school could close early.
Students needing to deviate from their routine must have a parent or guardian notify the guidance department prior to any change. This includes the decision to travel to a friend's or neighbor's house after school. For safety and security reasons, bus drivers must have authorization from the guidance department before allowing any student to change his/her bus route or drop-off location.
Those students wishing to drive their own vehicles must obtain permission from the high school main office.
